I heart faces: pink

Pink. For Breast Cancer Awareness.
Happens to be my favorite color, I probably have 1000's of photos with that very color in it, but none that represented "the cause" more than this single picture.

This summer I had an amazing opportunity to work with The Queen of Hope pageant, one of the most humbling experiences of my life. Each contestant was either a cancer survivor or was there raising awareness for the loved ones that they held close to their hearts that suffer with cancer. It is a very unique pageant that packs a very powerful punch! And a punch that Marinique had and I loved how she showed that she was ready to fight, as she posed next to the pink fire truck, part of The Pink Heals tour.

*If you haven't heard of either of these organizations, please click on their names above and you can read more about them! They do amazing things to support awareness.

The Casillas Family - White Tank Mountains

This is my friend Kristen. She believed in my picture taking from the start and has been there with every step of my growth. She was a big part of my push to start Rosie J. Photography (even before I had a name for myself). She will probably kill me when she sees that the first picture that I posted of the Casillas family photo shoot is of her, but...oh well, she is beautiful, inside and out!
I also wanted to say thank you. Thank you for believing in me from the start!

Now, onto my favorite photo from our session. The light was shining just right and I love the candidness of it, so imperfectly perfect.

Thanks Casillas Clan for another great year of beautiful family photos! I can't wait to see which photo you choose for your Christmas card!

Jackie Turns Two - Wigwam Resort

I met up with this little lady and her mama a few weeks ago to take pictures for her first birthday! She was such a happy baby girl and looked adorable in all of her outfit changes!

Happy Birthday little lady! Can't wait to see you again in November for more pictures with you and your family!
